Description

This has to be the coolest guitar that has ever been made, this beautiful Rickenbacker 331LS Light Show model was so far ahead of its time, its see-thru Cherry Red or Burgundyglo finish is in outstanding shape & is the quintessential color associated to this model, its 2 Hi-Gain pickups are quite potent & brilliant sounding, its 2 clear Lucite panels are quite clean & stamped “Pat.Pending”, its Lightshow “Christmas Tree” circuit was Rick’s 1st attempt at making a guitar that lights up, soon to be replaced by its 2nd series circuit board, these 1st examples are extremely rare as most do not work well any longer, this is a very early production model made in September 1970 bearing the date code “JI” making it one of their 1st sold to the public, nice smooth Kluson Deluxe tuners w/a clean white truss rod cover, she has a straight neck & is 1 of the best performing & playing 331LS on the Planet, other than a changed input jack for the power supply, she’s 100% original & exceptionally clean overall showing slight wear on the back of the neck & edges of the body, comes with its rare “Pat.Pending” stamped Power Supply box in its rare early original Black Tolex/orange lined hard case. This is the rarest & coolest Rick anywhere & is on most collector’s bucket lists.
